St. George Church, Dinkelsbuhl

4.5
#2 of 13 in Things to do in Dinkelsbuhl
Pick a sunny day to climb the 220 steps to the top of St. George Church, which offers sweeping views of the city and the surrounding area. Considered a masterpiece of Gothic architecture from the 15th century, this church is one of the city's main landmarks and a major tourist attraction. Located in the heart of town, the core of the building was constructed sometime in the 1400s, adding on to older structures that already existed in this area. A tall tower was meant to be built at the northern end of the church, but the ambitious plans had to be put aside due to a lack of funding. The church was eventually extended to an old tower already in existence, once a freestanding structure just to the west of the main building.

  • In the city center this church is impressive in its typical Gothic structure like any other in this region. Essential without many sacred accessories as seen in the Baroque style, is bright enough thing not easily found for this style. There are the remains of San Giorgio, the Tower reached on payment to enjoy a very nice view. Recommended.

  • What a gorgeous and historic church in the middle of a charming small town! Be sure to stop in and check it out!  more »
  • St. George's Minster is a beautiful masterpiece of the Gothic style in the late 15th century (by Nikolaus Eseler). It is the "Hall church" more large (one built without corridors) in the country of Germany.
